The Gambia

Tragically the elephant, which was once The Gambia’s national emblem, was long ago hunted to extinction here. The last recorded sighting (and subsequent shooting) of an elephant was in 1913. 

As a member of the EPI, the Gambia contributes to the fight against the illegal ivory trade and the trafficking of ivory through the country.
